Encapsulation of Hydrophobic Dyes in Polystyrene Micro- and Nanoparticles via Swelling Procedures

Abstract

Aiming at the derivation of a generalized procedure for the straightforward preparation of particles fluorescing in the visible and near-infrared (NIR) spectral region, different swelling procedures for the loading of the hydrophobic polarity-probe Nile Red into nano- and micrometer sized polystyrene particles were studied and compared with respect to the… (More)
